Greyt Inspirations Life

A little about our life, our business and our pets.

Shadow again…

Yesterday, Shadow spotted our resident chipmunk at the bird feeder in our backyard. Unfortunately for him, it sits on a feeder stand in the middle of our backyard.  Shadow was so intent on the chase, that he forgot about the stand. I was sitting in the livingroom and heard the infamous “greyhound scream”.  I jumped up and ran to see what had happened. When I got there, Shadow was sulking in the middle of the yard, the bird feeder stand which is steel and strong was bent over almost to the ground, the bird feeder itself was found far away – near the back fence line, broken into pieces and bird seed from the middle of the yard to the back. Bird feeders can fly! 🙂

I checked Shadow over completely and not a scratch. I think he just scared himself when he ran into the stand.  An 80lb dog can sure do alot of damage- thankfully it was just the birdfeeder totalled and he didn’t hurt himself.  Luckily, we were able to put the stand back into the ground and we had a spare bird feeder in the basement so all is back to normal, with the exception that we fixed it so that the chipmunk can’t get at the feeder anymore.

Poor Shadow.
